The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic game franchises in history. Yet, for all its accolades from over the years, it seemed to be missing some key elements: Namely self-absorbed monologues, blatant cultural stereotyping, and side-scrolling dance numbers. Well, the folks behind this fan-made trailer seem to recognize that deficit and have brought it to life with The Legend of Zelda! (That's "Zelda" with an exclamation point.) Taking 80's teen romp favorites like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Say Anything, with a slight dash of The Karate Kid and throwing them into a blender with Zelda gives us this would-be lost Reagan-era pubescent screen gem that we didn't know we wanted. These guys previously gave us God of War as a Wes Anderson-type indie movie and a take on Mario in Inglourious Plummers. This does not disappoint.
Don't put another dime in the jukebox, gag me with a spoon, and do the safety dance in the heat of the moment! Miyamoto just dropped his banjo!
Also, be sure to check out their shot-for-shot comparison video of the original films they parody.
